Ahead, we'll take a closer look at what local real estate SEO is, how it works, and why it's an especially good fit for real estate marketing.

The first tip, and maybe the most important, is just to be present. You don't need to spend all day checking your notifications, but it's important to respond when someone reaches out to you, posts a public comment, or comments on content that you've shared. Just as when you're meeting a client in person, being accountable for the little details is one of the best ways to show you'll do the same for the big details down the line.
